it seems like lost of traiering sites and fishing sites have a TON of questions on trailer tires and quite a few guys that are brand loyal. The goodyear trailer tires seperated on me, the carisle's broke the cords this tire that tire it seems that every manufacture does or did make there tires right in the good ol USA but now has moved all manufacutring over seas or just quit making trailer tires. i had no choice in putting the carisles back on my trailer b/c the tire shop only has that brand (Manistee).
Next time i'll look for the "D" rated tires

carlisle's 14" 215's rated at 1870 at 50psi

I just want to point out that most bass boat trailers only use a "205" and not a "215"... The 205's have less load capacity. Both are load range "C".... But capacities are lower.

Other 14 inch tire options with Load range "D" , speed rated to 100+ mph, accept up to 65lbs air pressure; These are like an 80 series and 195's are the similar diameter of the ST 205 series Marathons and other ST trailer tires.... And the 205 Kumho 857 are similar diameter as the ST 215 Marathons and other ST trailer tires.

Hankook  RA08 Radial 195R14/8

Kumho 857 Radial 195R14 or 205R14

This is another good choice for a 14 inch trailer tire rated at over 100 mph, load range "D", accepts 65lbs air pressure.

I'm in a travel trailer club and this topic comes up a lot. The experts there always say that "ST" - Special Trailer tires are made to be used at 65 MPH and not more. So it always concerns me when I see guys towing their boats at 70+. I'm guilty and have been trying to slow down and get their safely. What do you all think?

I personally wont tow at 65 mph... I tow at 75 mostly. I want a tire rated for more than the task I ask. LT tires are not de rated like passenger car tires. LT tires are rated for trailers too.

Read this link.

ALL ST (special trailer) tires are rated with a maximum speed of 65 MPH. You need to be aware of some difference if you move to LT (light truck) tires - http://rvingwithmarkpolk.com/2012/11/08/trailer-towing-st-tires-vs-lt-tires/

Yep... It's a debate... I trust the "Trailer tire" people more than "RV" know it alls.. LOL..

All kidding aside. I have never had a blow out and have run Marathons since the 90's. I can see a huge difference in sidewall bulge between the Load range "C" Marathons and my Kumho 857's load range "D".

I'm a lot more confident running these at 75 mph and the boat seems to follow the tow vehicle better as well with less bounce... Just my personal experience on my single axle 22 ft bass boat/250 Yamaha.
